We Meet 7 Female Artists Featuring At This Year's The Other Art Fair. by Katie .. I was born in Kazakhstan in , and have lived in the UK since Interface Arts is a collective of artists and craftpersons based in County Durham times and directions can be found at: az-links.info an opportunity to meet other artists and discuss issues relating to your practice. OPEN, An exhibition of UK artists on az-links.info will showcase 15 stellar art is my first love, but I find it difficult to leave other disciplines behind.
What is your favourite piece of work that you'll be exhibiting at The Other Art Fair March and can you tell us a little bit about it? I met some traditional female dancers in Zambia a few years ago and asked if I could photograph them when they performed.
I have been working from these photos for two years now. Instead of painting the whole figure of the dance I wanted to focus on the portrait only as I felt the energy of the dance was expressed in their facial expression alone. My background is Architecture. I studied in Oxford and London.
Architecture shaped my aesthetics and gave me skills and knowledge that later on helped me develop my own style.
I seek for magic and exotic concepts and what I'm interested in mostly is Surrealism. I find Surrealism an act of liberation from the oppressive monotonous reality.

I am making digital surreal collages. I take retro Americana, blending it with pastel colours and pinks, dramatic landscapes, tropical palm trees and pictures of the universe to create surreal utopias. The works are rich in color, texture and layers, which create a sense of depth. I want my art to be able to touch all ages and genres.
But since my perspective and my experiences are that of a young woman, I feel that young women can relate more to my work.

I think it has also contributed in broadening the definition of art, which is beautiful. One of my new ones is "Facing the Stars and the Lions" and it's part of a triptych. For Station to Station, Abraham Brody is performing Ancestors and Soul Alchemy II, two 6 hour performances which explore notions of ritual, shamanism and higher states of consciousness. By performing these rituals — which use wheat, amber dust and wildflowers — Brody will attempt to reconnect with his ancestral roots.
In Soul Alchemy II, the artist invites you the public to experience his musical improvisations and interact with him and with each other. Participants are invited to paint thoughts, reflections and feelings on the canvas in the space.

Both were very successful in terms of how many people they reached on a daily basis. There is little effort required to maintain a window exhibition, for example no invigilation is needed, but the results can be very rewarding. Adrian would like to hear from people who are interested in being involved in his project and also people who have ideas about window spaces that could be used.
He is planning to produce a book and has been collaborating with a writer and graphic designer on the project. You can see more about the project here: He is also looking for people who have worked at the Pilkington Glass headquarters in St Helens to take part by allowing him to photograph them on the site.
